Tantalizing review of GPS/phone/PDA device
March 15th, 2006 by JTJ

We're usually careful to only report on the products that we can actually test drive, but just having invested in a Treo 650 (and we like it), we wish this reveiew by Hal Reid (Directions Magazine) of the Pharos Traveler GPS had come along a couple weeks back.  The device would appear to have promise for analytic journalists who are careful to always ground-truth their hunches.

the past month, I have been using the Pharos Traveler GPS 525 personal
navigation PDA. It has been to Nashville, Auburn University (Alabama)
twice, Georgia Tech (Atlanta), Ft. Steward (Georgia) and various other
places around central Georgia. My initial impression of navigation
systems in vehicles, prior to this review, was that they were probably
a �nice to have.� Frankly, I have
to admit that
at first I questioned the validity of actually owning one.

month with the Pharos has taught me that these devices can take a lot
of the heartburn out of traveling and even navigating in your own
backyard. The Pharos has made me a believer in these devices.

device is targeted to the traveling professional who needs a versatile
PDA for mobile email, Web access, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth built-in, Skype
for the
Internet telephone, plus integrated navigation. If I had a Bluetooth or
an infrared keyboard, I would have been able to experience even more
versatility with this product, as I could have written this review on
the device itself – while traveling.
